Kelly's program is committed to helping thyroid patients
find the care that they need.
What if I think I might have a thyroid condition?
The best place to start is your personal physician. Make sure
that your doctor knows about your symptoms and your concern about
possible thyroid disease. Often a simple blood test, the TSH level,
can sort out whether your problems are due to a thyroid condition
or something entirely different.
What if my doctor has diagnosed a thyroid condition and started
treatment, but I don't yet feel better?
Make sure your doctor knows about your continuing symptoms and
concerns. Once treatment has been started, it can sometimes take
weeks or a few months for a patient to recover completely.
Some patients, diagnosed with a thyroid problem can be helped
by an Endocrinologist that specializes in thyroid disease.
